Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Throws two picks in dress rehearsal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles completed 17 of 23 passes for 204 yards and two interceptions during Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Bortles was nothing more than a game manager Saturday, which comes as no surprise. While his two interceptions ruined a pair of scoring chances for the Jaguars, one of them one was a tipped ball that wasn't entirely Bortles' fault. Of bigger consequence for the quarterback's fantasy outlook is the knee injury that Marqise Lee sustained Saturday, as Lee served as the team's No. 1 receiver all of training camp. Bortles still has a solid supporting cast without him, starting with 2017 breakout Keelan Cole, 2018 first-rounder D.J. Chark and offseason acquisition Donte Moncrief, but Lee was an important part of the offense and Bortles' stock nonetheless takes a hit if the receiver has an extended absence.

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Ready to work with starters Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles, who is on track to work with the first-team offense in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons, could see action for "a half (and maybe a little more)" in the contest, per the Florida Times-Union.

Beyond that, Bortles is likely sit out the team's preseason finale against the Buccaneers on Aug. 30. At this time last year, Bortles was embroiled in a job battle with fellow QB Chad Henne, but this time around there's no doubt that Bortles will be the team's Week 1 starter. The 2018 Jaguars figure to be a team fueled by stout defense and a ground attack led by Leonard Fournette, so Bortles doesn't profile as a top-tier fantasy option. His chances of exceeding expectations on that front hinge on his ability to build chemistry with Jacksonvile's re-tooled pass-catching corps which features wide receivers Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and DJ Chark, as well as tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Showcasing improved accuracy in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles is facing no limitations after offseason wrist surgery and is illustrating increased accuracy thus far at Jacksonville's training camp, reports.

Bortles underwent surgery on his right wrist in late January to repair a partially torn ligament he suffered during the 2016 season. The 26-year-old received multiple cortisone injections to help play through the injury in 2017. Bortles indicated he was in constant pain while throwing the ball over the past two seasons, but since the surgery is pain-free and appears to have a crisper release, as well as delivering the ball with improved accuracy. Training camp remains in its early stages so it's difficult to assess how this might carry over to the regular season, but at this point the 2014 third-overall pick appears to have entered camp in a much better position than previous seasons..

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Moves past wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Bortles (wrist) is pain-free and shouldn't have any limitations when he reports to the team in April, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Bortles had surgery on his right wrist Jan. 26 and signed a three-year, $54 million extension less than a month later. He's been working out in California, preparing for the start of Jacksonville's offseason program in mid-April. In addition to the contract extension, the Jaguars have displayed confidence in their starter by opting not to bring in any veteran competition in free agency. The team does need to find a new backup, as Chad Henne signed with the Chiefs.

Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Expects to be 100 percent for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bortles (wrist), who agreed to a three-year, $54 million contract extension with the Jaguars on Saturday, said he expects to receive full clearance for full activities by early March, Michael DiRocco of reports.

With his new contract locking him in as the Jaguars' starting quarterback for at least the 2018 campaign, Bortles will turn his focus to getting 100 percent healthy for the start of Jacksonville's offseason program in April. Bortles appeared on the Jaguars' injury report throughout the season while managing the right wrist issue, but didn't miss any action due to the injury, starting all 19 of the Jaguars' regular-season and playoff outings. After undergoing minor surgery to address the matter Jan. 26, Bortles spent the past month rehabbing before heading to California this weekend to begin a limited throwing program. He's expected to remain out west for the next two weeks before being reevaluated by Jacksonville's team doctors prior to Organized Team Activities.
